Confirmed Manchester United XI vs Norwich City – Lingard starts

Ralf Rangnick has named his Manchester United starting line-up to face Norwich City at Old Trafford, as the Red Devils look for their first win in five weeks.

The team needs to stick together today – something they haven’t done in recent matches, especially after going a goal behind against Everton at Goodison Park last time out.

United have four players missing for the game against relegation strugglers Norwich City.

David de Gea will start between the posts, but that won’t come as a surprise to anyone, as confirmed by United’s official Twitter account.

In defence we have Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Alex Telles.

We thought that Nemanja Matic would start in midfield but that is not the case today. Instead, we’ll see Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard in a midfield three.

Cristiano Ronaldo will lead the line as Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga attack from the flanks.

United are currently seventh in the table, with Tottenham sat in fourth, while Norwich sit bottom, seven points behind 17th-placed Everton, who have a game in hand.

Rangnick has won eight of his 17 Premier League games in charge: the lowest percentage (47%) by any United manager. Hopefully today he makes it nine wins…
